REASONS WHY CHEETAH GIRLS IS AN IMPORTANT FEMINIST FILM

The Disney Channel original movie The Cheetah Girls was a very important film for me as a young feminist. I had the soundtrack and the book series, and my friends and I performed a dance to Cheetah Sisters at our talent show in fifth grade. Here are a few reasons why I think it should be on every young person's watchlist.
  1. Female friendship is a priority
  2. The Cheetahs demand respect from their love interests
    Though the only standard love interest comes in the second film
  3. Showcases healthy relationships between mothers and daughters
  4. A widely diverse cast
  5. Promotes girl power
  6. The Cheetahs are confident and know their worth
  7. They stay true to themselves, even if it means passing on a rare opportunity
  8. One word: Cinderella.

  9. It's simply cheetahlicious!
